What is the church?
Most of us think of the church as the building where we go for worship on Sunday or some other day, but is this building really a church? Jesus said in Matthew 16:18 I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Was that church to be a building made of wood and stone or some other material? No, it was made up of people, those that are called out. The word church in the Greek is Ekklesia, which means called out one; these make up the church that Jesus built.
